Thread: Prey you can help me plz

  1. #1
    Hi everybody, Dr Thick here. ive just aquired the pc game PREY and i personally haven't come across these install instructions for a game before one where you're adding to your hosts file.

    (see install instructions below).

    Burn or mount with DaemonTools or Alcohol120%.

    Install the game.

    Go to your c:windows/system32/drivers/etc editing Hosts file and add this line:

    Start it up and PLAY and when asked for CD-KEY enter:

    can you give me simple instructions as to where and how to add this new line. also will it affect any of my computer or internet settings and do i have to change things back again once i've finished with the game? i'd hate to f*ck things up (for the sake of my much cherished bollocks, please help).

    below are my hosts file settings as they are now

    Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.

    This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.

    This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one

    Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.

    For example:

    # # source server
    # # x client host localhost

    It wont cause any problems..

    Just open the hosts file and add below the last address... Its that simple and if you uninstall game you just open the hosts file and remove that line.

    I have been told that you can skip that step as long as you use your firewall to block the game from accessing the internet. Thats what the host file is for, and if you plan on trying to play on line then go for it, otherwise just use the cd key and your done.
